This Open Reed Elk Call is Designed by Rockie Jacobsen of Rocky Mountain Hunting Calls and Kristy Titus. This newly designed mylar reed and wood barrel produces the nasally, three dimensional sounds the bulls respond to during the rut. Ignite-Her-Wild has the exact “sweet” sexy tonal quality the bulls want to hear during the rut!

Easy to blow and sensitive. Simply use your top lip on the reed and blow air across the reed. Firmer lip pressure creates higher pitches, while less lip pressure results in deeper pitches. Cow mews start with a high pitch and taper smoothly to a lower pitch. Mews should be about 1 second in length. Chirps are shorter and higher pitched, lasting less than a second. Estrus mews are pleading and drawn out 1½ seconds or longer.

Practice on the call and listen to real elk sounds online since they are the best teachers of all!

Intro To Making Elk Sounds

In the latest PTW Tips From The Wild, Kristy Titus and Rockie Jacobsen of Rocky Mountain Hunting Calls walk you through making your first sounds with a diaphragm elk call. These elk calling tips will help you to create realistic sounding elk calls in no time.

Wild Frenzy Bugle Tube

The WILD FRENZY was designed by Rockie Jacobsen and Kristy Titus featuring Volume Enhanced Tone Technology (V.E.T.T.) as well as our tried and true Tone Selector. With the V.E.T.T. system the bugle tube creates true, easy to obtain bull elk sounds. The Tone Selector on the end of the bugle tube allows you to change the amount of volume projected and control the back pressure on your diaphragm. These two specialized features help you obtain the most realistic bugles possible.

The V.E.T.T. system contains a spring, tuned to the right dimensions, inside the specially made adapter. The spring creates more volume, stabilizes higher notes, has raspier low growls, easier octave changes and takes less air to operate. The spring allows for the right amount of vibration to enhance the tone quality and volume that is achieved when bugling into it.

The tube comes completely assembled with the spring and adapter inserted into the tube and is ready to use with your favorite mouth call diaphragm. The vibration dampener (Tube Tamer) is on the inside of the tube on the large end. This helps enrich the deep sounds for chucking and eliminates any plastic vibration. No more ‘tuby’ sounds.

The tube is less than 18” in overall length making it easier for packing, while still providing the volume and realistic quality sounds of a larger tube. With its 1” mouth opening and tapered lip adapter there is more comfort and control of all your bull elk sounds.

Hunting Is Healing with USMC Kirstie Ennis

On this episode of Pursue The Wild, Kristy Titus has the honor of taking Sgt. USMC (retired) Kirstie Ennis, on her first elk hunt. Ennis was an aerial gunner that was severely wounded in a helicopter crash while serving her country in June 2012. She suffered severe facial trauma, spinal cord damage, damage to both arms and was in limb salvage for many years. Since this hunt took place, Ennis had her left leg amputated above the knee as a result of injuries sustained during the crash.

“I wouldn’t be where I am today without hunting, especially going through what I did,” said Sgt. USMC (retired) Kirstie Ennis in the opening lines of the show. “The outdoors does something to you. Its gets you up and moving.”

Ennis’ hunt is thanks to the work of RMEF and Wounded Warrior Outdoors, who gained special access to private timberland in the Pondosa Tract in California for this hunt. This moving hunt originally aired on the RMEF Team Elk television show.
